Produce donors are key partners in assisting FVG in providing ingredients for our soup mix. The major sources are green house companies, frozen food distributors, and farmers. All product in the lower mainland is picked up by our own truck. Some product from outside the lower mainland is delivered by commercial truckers who only charge a nominal rate.
Some of the major donors are:
Bakerview Greenhouse Inc | B.C Frozen Foods | Millennium Pacific Greenhouses | Rosana Farms Ltd. | Heppell's Potato Corp. | Eklund Produce | Canadian Farms Ltd. | EV Logistics & SaveOn Foods | Willms Farms | Agape Food Bank | Windset Farms | Vitarra Bean Plant | RJR Produce |
Our soup mix is given free of charge to relief organization, church groups and individuals. They are required to submit a request form indicating the country, people group, adequate transportation funding, staffing for distribution in the specific area and provide feedback by means of images and reports. This information is passed on to our volunteers and supporters.
In addition to many churches and individuals, some of the major organizations that contribute are:
Food For The Hungry Canada | Compassionate Resource Warehouse | Global Aid Network | Samaritan's Purse Canada | Love Guatemala | Mission Without Borders | First Steps Health Society | Imani Orphan Care | New West Community Church | World Serve | Discipleship International | Fellowship International | Hope for Korah |
